3.04, 173 splitter

Postby jediknight2424 » Wed Oct 26, 2011 11:25 am

I'm applying ED to Virginia. Anyone have any suggestions on schools I might try applying to? Should I even bother applying to any of the T14 if I don't get into Virginia?

I'm not interested in scholarship money in general-- I'd like to get into the highest ranking school I can just not completely sure which ones I should try for.

Thanks!

You'll get your decision back really quickly, so you can still ED somewhere else in the T14 if you get rejected or WL at UVA. Georgetown is a possibility.

Definitely GULC. Add NU if you've got post graduate work experience.

I'll definitely give Georgetown a shot. Is it worth applying to Cornell, Penn, Michigan, Duke, or Texas?

Also if I were to early decision the second time around, which school should it be to?

Cornell doesn't have an ED program. They have EA, but it's non-binding and there's no boost for the application, but it might be worth an app. Duke, and especially Texas, wants higher GPAs and aren't friendly to traditional splitters. I'd ED to Michigan before Penn, I think, with that GPA, but I'm not sure how much of a benefit you get with an ED to Michigan, plus you'd need to start during summer term. I'd say GULC is probably your next best bet, if UVA doesn't pan out. Good luck.
